New York City Family Immigration Lawyer

Who Qualifies for Family-Based Immigration?

If you are a United States citizen or Legal Permanent Resident (LPR), certain family members may be eligible to immigrate to the U.S. based on their relationship with you. Different relationships grant relatives differing levels of priority in the immigration process.

It is important to review all of your options and pursue the route which will give you the highest likelihood of success. A New York City immigration lawyer from Musa-Obregon Law PC in Queens can provide invaluable assistance with each part of this process.

We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.
